Your place cards may range from tiny individual trees t0 the simplest of decorated cards. Here are four ideas for easy to make Christmas Place Cards.
An idea which the children particularly enjoy is a collection of marshmallow snowmen, or gumdrop animals, to hold each place card. Whole cloves are used for eyes and buttons. Long gumdrops, with toothpicks inserted, are used for the arms. The hat, and perhaps a small broom, could be cut from construction paper. Gumdrop animals will require only the candies, toothpicks, cloves -and a child's imagination.
Miniature Tree Place Cards
The trees are made by placing appropriately shaped clusters of evergreen in moist plaster-of-Paris. When this compound has hardened, the miniature tree stands upright and can be decorated with small metallic gummed stars or multi-colored gumdrops.
Or if time is short, the simplest of place cards can be made from a fold of stiff white paper wilh a liny sprig of evergreen and a small cone, or bow, glued at one side.
